Wayn-Tex Colbond Develop Stabilok Primary Backing

Stabilok, a combination of woven and nonwoven primary carpet backing, has been created through a partnership between Wayn-Tex Inc., Dalton, Ga., and Colbond Nonwovens, Enka, N.C. The backing was designed to eliminate the potential bowing and skewing that occasionally develops during the tufting, dyeing and finishing process.The requirement for a stable, almost bow- and skew-proof primary backing was evident when standard backings werent able to consistently meet the challenges of patterned tufted carpets, said Durwood Knight, vice president, sales and marketing, Wayn-Tex Inc. The two companies hope the alignment of resources and combination of products is solving an expensive problem for the industry.
